Office of the Superintendent

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Tri-Creek School Corporation.  We are excited about the opportunities we have to better serve our students and pursue excellence in education.  We encourage everyone to become familiar with our school district mission:  The Tri-Creek School Corporation and Community...Engaged to Learn, Equipped to Achieve, Empowered to Succeed.  We believe in this aim and are committed to living it each day with students and families in order to advance the potential for each of our children and constituents.

The purpose of Tri-Creek School Corporation is to ensure that our students are not only ready for the next grade, but ultimately college and career ready.  Tri-Creek students learn in a high tech environment with a student to computer ratio of 1 to 1 in grades 4-12 and 3 to 1 in grades K-3.  E-learning experiences support learning at all levels.  Students will become engaged in learning through collaborative, “hands on” project and problem based lessons that create a mindset of the student as a learner and a contributor.  The full district strategic plan may be accessed at this link.

The District has adopted 5 learning outcomes:

1. Content and Knowledge (subject matter)

2.  Agency (work ethic and attitude)

3. Collaboration (teamwork)

4.  Written Communication (part of all subject standards), and

5. Oral Communication (presentations). 

These outcomes are identified in the student report card and collectively contribute to deeper learning as well as a more effective student and worker. 

Parents and community members are encouraged to participate in the Listening Posts held throughout the year.  These nights are designed for the District to share their strategies for increasing student achievement as well as to listen to the thoughts and suggestions of the parents and community.  It is our goal to help students succeed in life and we seek parent and community input toward that end.  We welcome your thoughts, feedback, and questions.  Please feel free to contact us.  Phone numbers and emails may be found on the front of the webpage. 

I am excited to have this opportunity to serve the students and community of the Tri-Creek School Corporation.  As superintendent, my goal is to ensure all students are successful and equipped with the skills, knowledge, and tools they need to overcome challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, put forth effort to achieve, learn from feedback, and find inspiration in the success of others.  Together, we will achieve this goal!
